Scottish Water Careers Map – Let’s Explore!
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work for Scottish Water? They have launched a brand new Careers Map for pupils across Scotland.
Pupils can explore eight stops along the map including Science & Environment, Construction & Engineering, Communication & more. The map has something for everyone, each stop giving insight into various areas throughout Scottish Water.
Pupils interested in STEM subjects may wish to visit Digital, Data & Technology, pupils interested in protecting our planet may wish to visit Science & Environment. In each stop, pupils are able to hear from people, talking about their roles & how they ‘got the job’ … it might not be the way you think!
The Careers Map is suitable for ages 10-17 (P6/7 – S6) & pupils in P6 – 7 who may benefit from an early introduction to the variety of exciting roles available to them in the future.
